Javier Hernandez's Manchester United career is over. The Mexican striker has joined Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen on a three-year deal. Neither side has confirmed the fee, but the rumour mill estimates something around €12m, should you care about that sort of thing.

Hernandez leaves United having scored 37 goals in 158 appearances, 72 of those as a substitute. Only Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has scored more goals from the bench for the club, and for a while it looked as though Hernandez might develop into a similar super-sub. However, his form tailed away badly under David Moyes, and it became clear that Louis van Gaal didn't rate him when he went out on loan to Real Madrid last season.
